Wood Block Prints from China

An exhibit of official 1960's Chinese Commune Art

These bright-colored Volk-ish scenes of collective labor with their clear and pretty patterns are in fact like posters and served as a prime form of political instruction in the Chinese Commune. The opporunity to view the art on the site or even buy a book report via form is still available, even after all this time.

The Communist Party during Mao's regime used art as a tool for propaganda purposes. Mao wrote there is no such thing as art for art's sake the basic task for artists is to create heroic models of workers.
